By on March 3, 2015

delfino-vineyards-logoIn 2012, both the vines and the Oregon wine country B&B belonging to Jim and Terry Delfino celebrated their 10th anniversary, and this Cabernet Sauvignon offers a fascinating tone of dark purple fruit from start to finish. Aromas of Marionberry salt-water taffy from Bruce’s Candy Kitchen in Cannon Beach, Bing cherry and chocolate-covered orange peel transition to flavors of plum, black cherry and pomegranate. Well-managed tannins, brisk acidity and a finish of anise give this Cab a lighter, pleasant and food-friendly structure.
